Four years after fire, Trinity Evangelical Lutheran continues to rebuild

When flames engulfed Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in downtown Milwaukee in May 2018, it was a devastating sight for all, religious or not.

It's iconic, gothic spires were set ablaze; inside, fire caused widespread and critical damage throughout the 1878 church.

Thankfully (miraculously?) the building, 1046 N. 9th St., was not a total loss, and the congregation has been working to rebuild the church. Now four years after the fire, the project is entering the fundraising stage, which includes restoring the interior to its original gothic appearance and rebuilding the entire organ system.

On this week's Urban Spelunking episode, OnMilwaukee's Bobby Tanzilo and I discuss the current status of the project, plus Bobby shares details from his recent visit to the jobsite. Listen below, and visit OnMilwaukee for more.
